  • Louisburgh town is the main carriageway for all road users accessing the west coast from Westport so high volumes of traffic especially tourists were ever present during the works.
  • Works included removal of the existing bridge parapets and surfacing, addition of a reinforced over-concrete slab, edge beams and abutment extensions and general concrete repairs.
  • Steel cantilevered walkways were installed both sides of the new parapet to remove risks of pedestrians and traffic colliding, which was a major concern of the original alignment.
